This programme will give those studying in relevant disciplines the opportunity to experience working in the heritage sector as part of a paid internship. The programme will initially run for three years from 2022, creating 12-week placements for four candidates each summer.
Throughout the programme we will be establishing internships in a variety of disciplines related to understanding and caring for our collection and associated archive. This year we will be offering the following positions:
Curatorial Intern – visitor evaluation of different styles of interpretation available in our museum, alongside research into our collection and exploring new ways to exhibit our collection and story.
Conservation Intern – recording and analysing data from the Mary Rose hull, such as movement taken from tell-tale markers and automated readings from installed systems.
Collections Intern – cataloguing and researching material held in our collection, alongside working with new material acquired during the year of the 40th anniversary of the raising of the Mary Rose.
Heritage Science Intern – using analytical techniques to understand the properties of materials in our collection to aid conservation, with a focus on imaging and synchrotron techniques.
This programme was made possible by generous support from The Garfield Weston Foundation.
